03.12.2016 - Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview with Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, Moscow, December 1, 2016

Question: In your opinion, will Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States turn a new page in the dialogue between Moscow and Washington? What kind of relations does Russia want to build with the US? Did Moscow help Donald Trump become president, as representatives of the Democratic Party allege? Sergey Lavrov: If you allow me, I would like to begin with the last part of your question. Those who “helped” Donald Trump become president were the US citizens who voted for him on November 8. As President Vladimir Putin has said on a number of occasions, Russia has never sought to influence the election campaign, believing it to be an internal affair for the US. If anybody tried to interfere with the elections, it was the allies of the US. Just read what many European leaders said and wrote about Donald Trump during the campaign.

01.12.2016 - Remarks to the press by Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations, following the Security Council consultations on Syria

Q: Ambassador, the UK and France are drafting a resolution to sanction people linked to chemical weapons attacks… V.Churkin: I hope they keep drafting because they have been speaking about it as an urgent matter for such a long time without producing any drafts. But to be more serious we believe that first of all JIM has been working very hard in a very professional way but they were given a task and put in a situation that would not allow them to produce credible evidence. The only credible thing I think is the fact that terrorists used mustard gas. As for the Syrian Government, we gave you a very detailed expert analysis of their results and we believe they just don’t contain enough information to accuse anybody of anything. I suppose this is one of the reasons why it takes so long to draft a resolution they have been talking about.
